Adding data sources for Active Directory / Office 365 (hybrid)

If you have an Active Directory on-premise or hybrid environment, there are two data sources that you can configure:

Creating an Domain Controller data source

When you create a data collection for Active Directory, you configure the Domain Controller data source. The data collection collects information about users, groups, and mail contacts from Active Directory using LDAP.

If you have created more than one Active Directory forest target environment, remember to add a Domain Controller data source for each environment.

By default, the Domain Controller data source collects only direct members of groups. For example, if a distribution group contained 10 users and 14 distribution groups, the number of direct members would be counted as 24.

If you want to collect the effective members (direct and indirect) for a group you can use the Advanced settings in the Collect Effective (Direct and Indirect) Members for Groups section. For example, if you collect from a distribution group that has 10 user members and one distribution group member (that has 20 members), the number of direct members is 11 but the number of effective members is 30.

You can also restrict the data collection to collect from specific organizational units (OUs).

Click Execute job every: and select an hourly interval.
b
Click Execute job at: and select the specific job run time, the number of days between each job run, and a start date.
If you want to specify one or more explicit domain controllers instead of automatically discovering the domain controller, click Show Advanced Settings in the LDAP Collection Parameters section. For more information, see Specifying explicit domain controllers for LDAP connections . The domain controller must be a global catalog server.
By default, the Domain Controller data source collects direct members of groups. If you want to collect effective members (direct and indirect) for groups, click Show Advanced Settings in the Collect Effective (Direct and Indirect) Members for Groups section. You can select to collect effective members for specified groups or for all groups.
If you select Effective members for specific groups and click Add group, you have the option to add each group individually or you can enter a list of groups, each entry separated by a semi-colon (;).

Creating a data source for Office 365 user subscription configuration

The Office 365 user subscription configuration data source is used to gather Office 365 user subscription information including licenses and service provisioning status using remote PowerShell. You can create the data source for both native and hybrid Office 365.

For more information about credential prerequisites, see Permissions needed for the Office 365 user subscription configuration data source .

Adding data sources for native Office 365

If you have a native Office 365 environment, there are one data source that you can configure to collect from Azure Active Directory using remote PowerShell:
